- campaign, sytrofoam, unboxing christmas
Another year has come and gone and it’s time, once again, for our “Mr. Murph’s Unboxing Christmas” campaign. Only this year, we have a new twist. Any items that we can’t process through Mr. Murph, things like syrofoam and ribbons, are being sent to our new waste to energy processing plant at our landfill and turned in to power!
Think of how we’re helping Tulsa’s environment with this one-two punch. Last year, AWC set a Tulsa-metro area record, processing over 4 million lbs of paper, plastic, cardboard, and aluminum after Christmas. This year, the company hopes to crush those landmark numbers in large part due to its $10 million upgraded Material Recovery Facility (MRF).
Anything that doesn’t get recycled will go to our newly installed waste to energy plant at our landfill, American Environmental Landfill, where trash is being harnessed for over 4,500 homes in Oklahoma.
We’re thrilled to be part of this once again. Our campaign will last from December 26 through January 6th . All proceeds from the campaign will go to benefit American Therapeutic Riding Center (ATRC), a local charity dedicated to benefiting disabled children and adults through therapeutic horseback riding.
We encourage all of Tulsa to join us in keeping Tulsa clean by feeding Mr. Murph.
